: One week after the November 1966 election in California, this panel of journalists discusses the issues and results of the statewide election, in which all but one of the incumbent constitutional officers were voted out of office. The role of television in the election is a frequent discussion item. The panelists are introduced as (1) Earl C. "Squire" Behrens, veteran political writer and political editor, San Francisco Chronicle; (2) De Van L. Shumway, Sacramento News Bureau manager and political correspondent for United Press-International; (3) Nancy Clark, member of the KPIX-TV "The Big News" reproting team and prominent television news commentator; (4) Jack McDowell, noted political observer and political editor, San Francisco Examiner; and (5) Richard C. Bergholz, syndicated columnist and political editor, Los Angeles Times. The panelists are introduced by the moderator, A. Ruric Todd. This is the final program in the "Politics '66" series.
